How to prounounce vs. Nahuel?
I was looking through names for my son and this one caught my eye. Would you pronounce it NAH-well or nah-WELL?
The Top Baby Name is...
I would say:
Awful name however you pronounce it!
I wouldn’t say either. I would think it was nah-ool. (ool like in drool). I could be completely wrong but thats how i pronounced it at first glance.
@Amelia...d*mn you’re ignorant. Not to mention rude. That name’s Native American, I hope you haven’t offended anyone with your insensitive comment. The poster didn’t ask for your opinion, she asked how you’d pronounce it. Sit down and shut up.
I’d say nah-WELL.
It’s pronounced "naw-WEL." I really do like this name! It’s Native American (Mapuche to be precise) and means "jaguar." Which is a meaning that I just adore, because jaguars are some of my favorites in the animal kingdom. While I really have a soft spot for Native American names, I’m not sure that I’d ever use one myself, as I’ve heard that it might offend Native Americans? Though I’ve also heard that they only find it offensive if you use a tribe name (Cheyenne, Shawnee, etc.) I’m not really sure which is true, or if both or neither. Well, Nahuel is a wonderfully handsome and strong name, especially so if you have some Native American blood yourself! :-)
